benefits of coffee
The power of coffee

 

Coffee, the mayor nature source of caffeine, is a wonderful natural energy drink with lots of physiological and pharmacological properties. Either if you are a coffee lover or you are under a muscle building or weight loss program, perhaps you should consider to empower your day by adding a caffeinated drink to your daily routines. 

 

Tip: the average cup of filter coffee contains 140mg of caffeine compared with 100mg in instant coffee and only 75mg in tea. Caffeine is absorbed in the small intestine, metabolised in the liver cell and distributed to body tissues within 45 minutes of ingestion.

 

Though coffee has a long history of being blamed for many ills, recent research indicates that coffee may not be so bad at all.

Have a happy Valentine's Fitness Day

Fitness and Valentine's Day
Fitness and Valentine's Day

It’s Valentine’s Day and for romantic couples that probably means a crazy weekend full of yummy foods and highly caloric deserts. It is only once a year but better do not let this throw off your New Year’s goals for keeping yourself fit and healthy.

 

There are many ways you can take healthy food choices and maintain a workout schedule with your partner and still having a very romantic weekend. You could, for example, go for a walk on top of a hill or beach with a nice view and bring your picnic basket with your own choice of heathy foods. Being outdoors with the person you love is certainly a great healthy choice. This way you will probably enjoy eating guilt free because you have plenty of time to burn out your extra calorie by walking while enjoy being together with your love one.

The beginning of Virtual Personal Trainer

your online personal trainer
You can be the way you want

Today is the beginning and first blog of Virtual Personal Trainer, your online personal trainer

 

Origins and motivation

 

Virtual Personal Trainer uses unique science concepts to set our right “preset weight”. It has been first clinically tested and proved by myself (**UPDATE** Virtual Personal Trainer's methodology has been Scientifically Proven in Jan 2017; likewise, all my tools and apps have been recently validated in Dec 2017). Myself, Jose I was 47 years old when I created this approach (now on my 50s). I am originally from Spain with Masters in Biological Science, Food Technology, Nutrition, Organizational Engineering and PhD in Biology. I have more than 20 years of professional experience occupying leading positions both at private and public sectors. In the sports & fitness training world, I used to practice martial arts (Karate, Ninjutsu and Self-Defense), diving, ski, and I was a gym personal trainer at my 20s. Later on, I only practiced ski and snorkeling when I was on holiday. Because of my career, I put sports a bit apart for a few years. As of now, I am much of a world travel person. Perhaps because of my traveling experiences and relation with different cultures, one day I realised I was getting very fat and consciously unhealthy. I could not believe my weight was as much as 223 lbs (101 kgs). Too much business traveling and eating outside with no control over my food habits and spare time made me like that, I thought. But some day in July, 2012 I opened my eyes to the reality and that day was the beginning of a new resolution for me: "I never thought i will reach three ciphers. I will never be like this again", I promised myself.
